FAQs

FAQs

Can you put metal flake in base coat?
You can, but it is not advised. If you're not using a .002" or .004" metal flake then you're going to create an issue where the base coat is very textured (orange peel). Since base coat is opaque (unable to see through), you're going to end up with metal flake that is hidden by the base coat. For maximum impact, it is best to spray metal flake over your base coat, before your clear.
Can you put metal flake in clear coat?
Yes you can. You just have to be more careful as you can run clear coat easier than you can run intercoat clear.
